    Under Manage Connections, can't you just select "Wifi-Only"... that way it wont use your data plan.

    Yes, as I said "turn off data while roaming". You need to keep data services checked though

    I travel to USA 3-10 times a month. I use WiFi for everything!

    All I have done is Data OFF while roaming and I have never gotten an extra charge!

    I travel from the US to Canada for business all the time. When at the hotel, I turn off the mobile selection and and turn on the WiFi only portion. I am able to get my email, BBM, and browser. The only thing that I get is phone service. If you need to use the phone, just make sure the data portion in mobile options is turned off prior to turning the mobile portion on.
